During James Grant’s debut gig with the 14-strong, Greg Lawson-led Hallelujah Strings at Celtic Connections 2016, the famously thrawn, laconic ex-Love and Money frontman – now an outstanding solo artist – found himself waxing uncharacteristically rhapsodic. “I’m so totally loving this,” he enthused at one point. “It’s been a total gas”. After that show became Grant’s first live album, he returns to the scene and the same “rockestral” format, to unveil new compositions and cover-songs alongside L&M classics.
Declan O’Rourke released his third new single In Painters’ Light on November 27, as excitement builds towards the release of his forthcoming Paul Weller produced album Arrivals due on February 5 2021 via eastwest records.

His writing is much admired and covered by fellow artists, most notably his classic 2004 song “Galileo” which has been recorded by Eddi Reader and Josh Groban amongst others.
